We conclude our audio tribute to the late Richard Hatch by focusing on Richard's life and career from the 1990's through to his sad passing earlier this year.
Richard was a strong champion of the original Battlestar Galactica and even made an independent attempt to launch a continuation of Glen A. Larson's science fiction vehicle with his Battlestar Galactica 'The Second Coming' project which ultimately the networks would decline, chosing instead to opt for Ronald D. Moore's vision for a 'reimagined' Battlestar Galactica. We include the audio from the trailer that Richard concieved to promote his project.
Richard would also delve in to other areas of the science fiction genre when he concieved a project titled 'The Great war of Magellan'. A story of epic scale that once again would sadly be passed over by the networks. We talk about this project and include an audio clip from a convention where Richard discussed his concept.
Given Richard's tireless dedication to the Battlestar cause it seemed only fitting that Ronald D. Moore would offer a recurring role to Richard in the reimagined series and in 2004 Richard was cast as 'Tom Zarek', a former terrorist turned politician who's first appearence in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica was in the season one episode 'Bastille Day'. Dave provides audio commentary for Bastille Day, making reference to his companion guide as he does so.
Richard would continue to be a welcome presence at organised events and conventions and also penned several novels set in the Battlestar Galactica universe and will continue to be remembered by fans for both his tireless dedication and warm nature.
